If you’re a hardcore Anime fan like I am, then I’m sure most know about Neon Genesis Evangelion, but for those who haven’t, research it. Back in the 90s, a friend sold me some of his anime, with the old version of Evangelion among the pile & I watched it first. When I started watching, I’ll admit, the series confused me, but after a few episodes, I’ve had a grasp on the series.
With that said, this rebuild of Evangelion, (going by the titles Evangelion 1.11 and so forth), puts a new spin on the classic plot. Sure, most of the story hasn’t been messed with, but a lot of it has been well redone, with added scenes, new characters etc.
While Japanese dubbed with English subtitles is what I prefer when watching anime, Toonami ran Evangelion 1.11 & 2.22 last night, (Saturday) and I watched it, without to much laughing at the dubbed voice acting. Must say, I’ve enjoyed this new Evan so much that I’m leaning on buying it in a few months! It had the same humor, the same twists, but filled in a lot where the old Neon Genesis Evangelion left out!
